Re: To lawyer or not to lawyer?

It's a "tick the boxes" application. You either tick the boxes or you don't - and as mkelincs said, unless you have some real issues, a lawyer submission won't be of any benefit, and frankly, some of...

Mu husband became a US citizen in 2010, a year before we returned to the UK. Either way, the process will be the same.

Re: Totalizationl Agreement USA / UK Pensions

My husband was just shy of 40 quarters when we moved back to the UK. He gets a pittance from DWP here, but SSA used his UK contributions to make up his US deficiency. He also has his SS topped up via...

Re: Insurance for container moving back home

A few years back we were told (actually by the container company) not to bother, so we didn't. At the time, there were so many 'get out clauses' that he said the insurance was basically worthless.

Re: As Brit do I need to reside in UK to get spousal visa?

Re: Recieving your US social security in the UK

It depends - there's a lot of info on this page. See where your situation fits. As sI read it, basically, if you are over 60, you can continue to receive benefits. If you have remarried and are NOT...

Re: Dual residency US and UK where US remains primary

True enough; file and be done with it. It's confusing since the primary focus is on foreign trusts, not individuals. Even the detail for reporting 'gifts or bequests' talks about foreign trusts, and...

Re: UK Taxes

Definitely will need to be reported on a UK self-assessment, and as I understand it, any amount that exceeds the UK personal allowance will be taxable.

Re: Not seen each other, applying for spouse visa

Everything BritInParis said.

Colour me old, old-fashioned, and more than a bit skeptical, but if you've never met in person, you don't know how you will feel when you actually meet. Quite frankly,...

Re: US Kitchen Aid mixer in the UK

I have found just the opposite - if a motor, get a high-capacity transformer - at least 10% more than the max wattage of the appliance, and you are good to go. My hubby uses all his US tools here and...

Re: USA Lamps to the UK- Will UK bulbs be fit?

LED bulbs are very popular and even strongly encouraged because they are energy efficient. We've been back and forth multiple times now, but are firmly settled in the UK.

Re: Questions on bank accounts

If you have access to HSBC in the US, you could set up an account with them, and then open one in the UK. Wasn't an option for me, but I think you can transfer funds between the accounts quite easily.

Re: Best airline to bring dog home with me from US to UK

US Airways no longer exists - swallowed up by American Airlines about 3 years ago. Essentially any major airline is likely to be OK. The best airline IMHO is the one with the shortest flight time and...

Re: Tax question - worries!

The only thing I can say for sure is that you are not a 'dual citizen alien' as you are not US citizens. Good luck, and again, someone with more knowledge may come along and provide more information.
